London Broncos Rugby league team were relaunched in 2012. Although the team still play their games at the Twickenham Stoop they decided the Harlequins name was not giving them enough of an identity for both the fans and the club. The Broncos name was considered a good marketing name as the side had been known as such previously from 1994 until 2005. Harlequins RL was therefore from 2006-2011. The club has also been known as London Crusaders between 1991 and 1994 and was first known as Fulham Rugby League Club from 1980 until 1991.
Harlequins Rugby League also known as Quins RL or Quins play their home games at the Stoop Twickenham, sharing the facilities with NEC Harlequins the Rugby Union side. The club was only founded in 2005, having previously been known as London Broncos, and before that London Crusaders, the club however was founded in 1980 as Fulham as part of Fulham Football Club. The club has always struggled for support in London, but currently holds a place in the Super League.
When playing as Quins RL they wore a home shirt very similar to the union club's famous multi-coloured quartered jersey of light blue, magenta, chocolate, French grey, black and light green, it is one of the most distinctive and famous strips in the rugby world. The away shirt for the 2007 season was chosen by fans and was a white shirt with blue, green and red elements on each sleeve and also both sides of the jersey. The shirt has been pulled on by a couple of well known names in the game: Martin Offiah and Henry Paul.
The team completed its first season as Harlequins RL with 7th place in Super League XI. Although they seem to have established them selves in the Super League they still struggle for consistency hovering nearer relegation than the play-offs. Under previous guises the highlights were: Super League Runners-up 1997, Rugby League Challenge Cup Runners-up 1999.
